Figuratively Speaking – Reflecting On Virgil Abloh’s “Figures of Speech” Exhibit

Figures of speech are more than metaphors.

Virgil Abloh opened his latest installment of his “Figures of Speech” exhibit at The High Museum of Art Atlanta in November 2019. Although I feel that the majority of the flock attended for the limited edition merchandise, the exhibit served the public dynamic approaches to the artist’s current views of social society.

Heavily influenced by Virgil’s fashion, design, and music, Figures of Speech gave viewers a peek into his successful creative spectrum that is HE and OFF-White.

In honor of Virgil’s death on November 28th from a rare form of cancer, I created a video review of the exhibit when I was invited to the media preview that was available before the public.

The exhibit, titled “KAWS PRINTS”, is a collection of pieces drawn directly from The High’s inventory that features silkscreen printed works from the artist’s (Brian Donnelly) portfolio spanning over twenty years. Fashioned chronologically, visitors have the opportunity to view the Brooklyn artist’s work from the1990s through today.

“This is the first time our KAWS prints will be exhibited together, and we’re thrilled to give our audiences an opportunity to familiarize themselves with this important facet of his work,” said Rand Suffolk, The High’s Nancy and Holcombe T. Green, Jr., director.
